The Message

Psalm 138

A David Psalm

11-3 Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”
    Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
I kneel in worship facing your holy temple
    and say it again: “Thank you!”
Thank you for your love,
    thank you for your faithfulness;
Most holy is your name,
    most holy is your Word.
The moment I called out, you stepped in;
    you made my life large with strength.

4-6 When they hear what you have to say, God,
    all earth’s kings will say “Thank you.”
They’ll sing of what you’ve done:
    “How great the glory of God!”
And here’s why: God, high above, sees far below;
    no matter the distance, he knows everything about us.

7-8 When I walk into the thick of trouble,
    keep me alive in the angry turmoil.
With one hand
    strike my foes,
With your other hand
    save me.
Finish what you started in me, God.
    Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.

诗篇 138

感恩的祷告

大卫的诗。

1耶和华啊,
我全心全意地称谢你,
在众神明面前歌颂你。
我要向你的圣殿下拜,
称谢你的名,
因为你是慈爱信实的,
你显明自己的尊名和应许伟大无比。
我祷告的时候,你就应允我;
你使我刚强壮胆。

耶和华啊,世上所有的君王听见你的话都要称谢你。
他们要歌唱耶和华的作为,
因为耶和华荣耀无比。
耶和华虽在高天之上,
仍看顾卑微的人,
祂对骄傲的人也了如指掌。

耶和华啊,虽然我身陷患难,
你必保护我的性命,
伸手攻击恼怒的仇敌,
用右手拯救我。
耶和华必成就祂为我所定的计划;
耶和华啊,你的慈爱永远长存。
求你不要撇弃你亲手所造的。
